Suzy Homemaker

It appears my husband is slightly confused about the person he married.  We've often run into the dilemma of me being rather messy and leaving my stuff laying around.  But for my defense, I generally stack things in piles - that's organized, right?  Anyway, last night he was frustrated with me because he pulled a shirt out of the closet and it had snags on it (it's one of those Under Armour shirts that are smooth and designed to keep you cool).  Apparently I'm supposed to know how to keep them from snagging in the wash!  Beats the heck out of me, its not like I purposely let it get snagged!  I'm always extra cautious about those kinds of shirts, heck, they can be pretty pricey.

Then, that led to why I haven't figured out how to stretch his jeans.  Yes, this sounds funny, but he doesn't mean in width :)  A few pair have shrunk slightly in length, again my fault!  However, I do not dry jeans and he even has two identical pairs where one shrunk and the other didn't - its a mystery!

Back to the point in which he is confused!  Never have I declared to be a Suzy Homemaker!  I'm not artsy fartsy and I'm sure not overly creative - my house isn't fully decorated after a year of living here because I just don't have that touch.  I'm the person that when something breaks, I rather go buy a new one then try to figure out how to fix it.  I'm not into Pinterest because I simply don't care about new or exciting things to do or try to make.  Every once in a while I may go out on a limb but I'm perfectly content with the status quo.  I don't have the interest in clipping coupons to save $.50 or make my own laundry detergent for fun! Its just not me!  And apparently my being a semi-retired female (that's the nice way of saying currently unemployed), I'm supposed to know all this stuff!


I guess I have now been challenged to step up to be that Suzy Homemaker I'm "supposed to be".

  1. This made me chuckle, especially since I look around the room and see piles of just my stuff laying around.

    The underarmor can get snagged on jean zippers. Or any zipper for that matter. I try to always make sure pant zippers, hoodies, etc. are zipped up before popping them in the wash.

    As far as the stretching of the jeans? Once the cotton shrinks, it shrinks. =) Warm or hot water will shrink them, cold will not.
    That's about all I've got.
